Even if the damage was exaggerated it is a true testament to our lake. There is no rougher water than the big lakes, when we have 6-8's they are steep as a wall and about 3 seconds apart, it is impossible to time them and they come in a series that can be somewhat timed but never exact. You can have a stretch of smooth and then hit some monsters, some even rouge in nature where they just tower over the others. Just ask Parnell, he added 100s of lbs to the structure of his Saber 41 to take the beating. There is no doubt you will find the weak link in your boat on our water.

On our 46 Cig, we had a small panel in the cabin that's directely in front of the dash that came loose. The one that has a little storage door built into it. Going down there right now to replace the screws with the next size bigger ones.

The 40 Skater that had a delamination on the front of the sponson, was because of a previous repair to the boat before the current owner owned it, that was done improperly. Someone previously repaired it with cauk and glue, as you could see it when the outer layer peeled back. We looked at it sunday morning while on the trailer. That boat was a very light layup hull, probably a race boat turned pleasure.

It's currently being repaired the "CORRECT" way at Captain Nabbers shop in Morris. He will be out for the shootout next month.

No broken parts here, but does it count when the blonde in the back was "screaming" and crying for us to stop or she was gonna jump off the boat??????
After the first 2 minutes of the morning run to MC, I had to put down the camera, and hold onto the blonde that was next to me, cause she was trying to jump "OUT" of the boat cause we would'nt turn back for her to get back on land.
That really kinda slowed us down as we had to run the boat as "softly" as possible for her, and when we got to MC, we had to get her a rental car to drive back to East Chicago. This wasted a half an hour dealing with her.
